Reform

At Minimalissimo, I come across a lot of great kitchen designs. It is my favourite part of a home, and I love exploring these gorgeous spaces. For design lovers, it’s easy to admire designer kitchens but feel they are unobtainable when it comes to one’s own house. Reform, founded by Jeppe Christensen and Michael Anderson, seeks to change this notion with custom cabinetry and countertops to fit the average consumer’s budget. According to Jeppe Christensen:

We wanted to challenge the traditional kitchen industry. In collaboration with internationally acclaimed architects and designers, we have created new opportunities to get extraordinary design using the highest quality materials. And all at a reasonable price as we are using Ikea’s basic elements. 

Using Ikea cabinetry as a base, Reform’s products transform kitchens and bathroom vanities with new fronts, hardware, and countertops. Featuring an impressive array of designers (including Minimalissimo favourite Norm Architects), Reform is rich in style options. For an upscale minimal aesthetic, I love the Sigurd Larsen and Norm Architects designs. For a more trendy design, the metal accents on the Henning Larsen are stunning. My personal favourite is the Chris Liljenberg: the dark colours and wooden accents make for a dramatic cabinet that is sure to be a showstopper. All the designs are complete with countertops in materials such as oak, fibre concrete, and stainless steel. There is even an option for a waterfall edge.

Reform provides an ingenious solution to the challenge of affording designer kitchens. With the convenience of Ikea and Reform’s high-end styles, a designer kitchen is now available to anyone. Reform ships worldwide and has showrooms in Copenhagen, Berlin, and NYC.
